          You do have to keep reapplying throughout the day, it does get Xtra oily after a while

              Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics De-Slick Mattifying Powder:

              My skin is very oily and it did make the shine go away, but I don't think this is worth it for the price. I had similar results with a translucent powder that cost much, much less. I was also dissapointed with the sponge that seems like its more like a piece of cardboard. I expected better from UD.

                    I have very oily skin. I have used this product and am shocked at how well it works. You don't have to use a whole lot and oil goes away and redness disappears!

                      I love this powder because it is translucent. I have fair skin and alot of the lighter colors make me look too white. I don't look like I have powder on--but it has great coverage!!! It controls shine which is,great for my oily skin, but I think this product would work well for any type of skin!!!

                        LOVE this product! Very well made easy to use. Even had to be on video with my husband and he used it! No shine at all just what was needed. And he is very oily and sweats way more then me and it worked way better then I could have hoped for! Thanks UD for such great products!!!

                            I love powder foundations but have oily skin and find that touching up during the day to control shine results in a caking and uneven color. This product is completely translucent and lightweight so it is perfect over my regular powder foundation and for touch ups during the day. I have medium tan skin and it doesn't make me look pale like other products do. I found using a light dusting after concealing and before I use my regular powder foundation helps as well. Love this product!!!

                                  I have pretty oily skin, especially in the summertime when it is hot out. I've always searched for mattifying products, but nothing I've ever tried works as well as this product does. I have been buying UD products for the past 3-4 years, and I absolutely love them! This powder is wonderful because it is long lasting (I only apply this powder a few times throughout the day) and does not cake up or leave a white-ish glow on your face. It's also made without parabens and other harsh chemicals, so it's good for you skin. The only downfall with this product is that it is a bit pricey, however, it is worth it for the wuality. I only buy this powder roughly twice a year (every 6-7 months), so the expense isn't really a big deal because it lasts a long time. Completely worth the expense if you have oily skin!

                                      You can certainly use the two products together for maximum oil control - it is totally up to you and your needs/personal preference. When using together, apply De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray (Item #: 2251725) just before your foundation, then apply De-Slick Mattifying Powder over makeup, then spray with De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray again to deflect surface shine and lock makeup in place.

                                    Does this product work for women of color? Most makeup companies leave us out of the equation. Most translucent or invisible products turn ashy or appear white on our skin. What is the characteristic of this powder? I am looking for an mattifier that complements my skin.

                                      Urban Decay Cosmetics De-Slick Mattifying Powder can be used on all complexions. It features an invisible formula that curbs excess oil production and eliminates shine. Urban Decay says, "Don't let the pale lavender color fool you; this baby goes on invisibly and works on every skin tone, from dark chocolate to the palest porcelain."

                                    I do like the product. However, I do not like the applicator. What other applicator can I use?

                                    I have very oily skin. Will this help control it throughout the day?

                                      De-Slick Mattifying Powder is designed to absorb excess oil and reduce shine. It can be reapplied throughout the day as needed.
